Clarity in speech

Aisha (radi Allahu anha) reported that, “The speech of the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) was so clear that all those who listened to it would understand it.”

[Sunan Abu Dawud]

Commentary:

The scholars who commented on this report said that the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) used to speak clearly and decisively.

However, it may also mean that, while speaking, He (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) would pause upon his words in such a way that each and every word which came from his lips appeared detached from the other.

He (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) was never like those who speak quickly and their words are mixed up with each other.

This report reflects the Prophet’s (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) eloquence as well as his due care and decency in putting in his viewpoint to the convenience of his audience.

And Allah knows best!
